Ms. Nasrs' 2nd Grade

This week students came home with books. They do not need to return them! Please use them this summer to have your students review 2nd grade concepts to be ready for 3rd grade.


PBJ sandwiches were made today based off of students instructional writing today! It should be in a bag in their backpack for you to decide if they can eat it. They were made with sunflower butter and sugar reduced grape jelly. Students with gluten allergies had theirs made with Udi brand gluten free bread before any other bread was opened.
